Why is finding a willing NP to precept so difficult?  I am desperately seeking an NP for Women's Health in San Antonio.  As long as the practice sees >50% women, this is the only criteria.  We've all been students trying to meet the requirements of our NP program and it is very stressful. We shouldn't have to pay > $2,000 for a preceptor.  This duty is part of our professional practice to support new and upcoming students in the field.  I have been a preceptor for 27 years, training new nurses in many fields of practice but mostly intensive care.  I look forward to being the NP preceptor in the future.  Please, if anyone is in San Antonio, Tx that is willing to precept, please let me know.  I'll be forever grateful.

Check to see if your local county health departments have women's health clinics. Not only do you get to help an under-served population, but you get to see some interesting OB/Gyn cases. I was able to secure my OB/Gyn clinicals this way. Our local university's medical school also uses this site for their med students, so the doctor on-site is a wonderful teacher. I'm assigned to an NP (there is one doctor and 3 NPs in the clinic) and I've seen SO much during my rotation.
